I have a Mac mini I picked up a few months ago to learn about developing iPhone/iPad apps; it's an Intel Core Duo running OSX 10.6. I'm running Xcode 3.2.6.
Can I not use this to test apps for updated iPhones?
When I try to add my new iPhone 4 (not s) to develop with I get this error:
The version of iOS on “<my iPhone>” does not match any of the versions of iOS supported for development with this installation of the iOS SDK. Please restore the device to a version of the OS listed below, or update to the latest version of the iOS SDK; which is available here. OS Installed on iPhone 5.0 (9A334)
If I understand correctly, I need Xcode 4, which means I need OSX 10.7, which needs a newer processor than my Intel Core Duo. I'm also under the impression that it's almost impossible to update a Mac's hardware due to a variety of limitations they have.
So am I basically stuck with the option of buying a new Mac just to update Xcode, or is there a simpler alternative?
